Comment virtual labs (Score 1) 393

The quality of online education could improve even more when virtual reality labs can be used at low cost. Even then, actually working with lab equipment (bio/medical or engineering) adds greatly to the curriculum. Some of these things are just way to expensive for the average person to purchase.

It could, but only within the organization since I can setup email printing to only accept from certain email servers within a range of IP addresses. Within an organization it's easy to find out when someone is abusing something, and when that does happen there are consequences for that person within that organization. I'd have to blame the admin for leaving this wide open to the whole world.

Comment youtube: xplane on 24 monitors on ubuntu (Score 1) 262

xplane on 24 monitors on ubuntu out of one box, but I think this was using 4 of the 6 output eyefinity cards:


Assuming that the 6 output cards use 2 card slot spaces each, then you'd have 8 used. It looks like this HD5970 uses 3 slots so you could still only get two of these cards into that same system. If you could get one more rear slot to be available you might be able to fit 3 of these cards into one machine and you'd get a 36 monitor output (each monitor at 1920x1200). You could have a 9 (*1920) wide by 4 monitors high (* 1200), which is about 79.1 megapixels . Or you could do a 6 x 6 .

even if I symlink the existing libraries to the names it wants above it'll still bomb on the GLIBCXX_3.4.9 error. http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=13425 . No big deal though. Without support for firefox plugins Chrome is pretty much worthless for me.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
